I am interested in purchasing a Eladdin Seagull 78 controller adapter for the Atari 7800, but it is sold out in the AtariAge store. If anyone has one that they would like to sell please PM me.

Thanks

I saw that yesterday as well, but I don't know if that website is updated, to reflect sold out status, or the buy link disabled if the product is not available. I emailed Eladdin from the website, and PM him on here inquiring the stock status if ordering from his website, but haven't gotten a reply yet. I am sure that Eladdin is busy, and well get to replying once he has time. I just didn't want to order, and be way for a long time only to find out that the product isn't available, and then have to try to get a refund.

Ed's a busy guy (building out the allotment of ColecoVision controllers from the Kickstarter) but he's also a very GOOD guy and I'm sure he'll get back to you. The Seagull 78 is great, by the way. Well worth it.

I'm sure Ed is a good guy just as you said. I didn't mean him any slight when I said that I hadn't received a reply yet. I know most people are very busy, and doing retro console related things are a hobby. I have no demand for a reply, and will wait patiently. I just thought it would be best to check with him about stock before ordering as it will save us both the hassle of a refund if the Seagull 78 isn't actually in stock. However if anyone still would like to sell theirs go ahead and PM me.

I wouldn't worry about ordering from Edladdin.com. If it shows out of stock or low stock I wouldn't take long for that status to change.
I know that he had some sourcing issues with the control panel doors on the Supreme 78 recently but I think that is no longer an issue.

Sorry for the delay responding!  We're often slow to deliver the goods, but I try to at least be quick about responding to communication.

 

We are currently in the middle of building a fresh batch of Seagull 78s for AtariAge and also our own stock.  I should have pressed the "out of stock" button on the Edladdin store sooner to avoid confusion, but I have done so now.

 

We are going to send the first chunk of this batch to Albert so he can catch up with everyone, then we will do the same on our end.  So your soonest option will be to check back at the AA Store.  I will post a note here when we make the shipment as a trigger for anyone interested in making the purchase.

 

THANK YOU for your interest and support! 

 

Ed

Thanks for the reply Ed. I will keep watching the AtariAge store for the next batch. Glad to hear that the Seagull 78 will be getting another production run since the stock 7800 controllers are the worst controllers ever on any Atari system (the only thing that makes the 5200 controllers even near that bad iz that they aren't self centering).

While you wait for the adapter, another option would be purchasing DanthWader's 7800 controller, which is a modified NES-style gamepad and I can vouch for it - it's excellent! Not sure if he has any in stock at the moment, either, but it's worth a PM.
